Westwood Golf Club Press Release
Pupils have good behaviour down to a “tee”
Leek school pupils could benefit from golf lessons from top professional Greg Rogula as a reward for good behaviour.
It’s part of a plan by St Edward’s Church of England Academy in Westwood Road Leek and Westwood Golf Club Leek in encouraging positive behaviour both in school and in their social surroundings.
St Edward’s Vice Principal, Jason Parrish said: “We wanted to find a way to make the most of the increased interest in sport following the highly successful Olympic Games, using the discipline of top sportsmen and women as a way of promoting and helping our pupils to be good citizens”.
“Following initial discussions, we are proud to announce that we will be working in partnership with Westwood Golf Club professional, Greg Rogula and his team.”
Greg, who started playing at 11 and has played some world-class courses venues during his golfing career, including Royal Birkdale and the Belfry, feels this will be a great opportunity: “It has always been golf that captured my interest from an early age and I'm delighted to have the opportunity to inspire these youngsters.”
The partnership between St Edward’s Church of England Academy and golf professional Greg Rogula will see a number of year 8 pupils receiving 3, ½ hour golf lessons, with the added incentive that the best two will receive free membership for a year.
